We saw that this café had good reviews and decided to give it a try. The outside does not look like much and the parking is limited, but we decided to go in anyway. We sat on the patio which was very nice. The service...More

We sat on the patio in the beautiful October sun and ate superb Mexican food. The chile rellenos were the best ever - no batter, just delicious chilis stuffed with cheese and mouth watering green sauce. the tortilla soup was also delicious and unusual. I...More

La Cueva is a cozy little restaurant with only four tables inside, or patio seating outside. I thought the inside could be spruced up a bit. Service was very good. I had the chicken mole enchiladas. The food was good, but none of the flavors...More

Simple decor in an outside deck, pleasant service, and good, simple New Mexico cuisine for a reasonable price. What's not to like? We were very pleased, and empowered to see the rest of the town.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but once inside you're in for a treat. I had the enchiladas NM and which were filling but still left room for the mango cream chimichangas. Absolutely delightful!

We stopped for a quick lunch. A small location with no alcohol. Good portion sizes and rather mild spice level. Good seafood. Specials are a little higher priced. Other tables were a good mix of local and visitor.
